Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring my friends who have met celebrities.
Tiffany Darwisch made her musical debut while still a pre-teen. She really gained fame with Could've Been, released in 1988. While her popularity rose and fell over the years, Tiffany remained active on the music scene. I am actually a fan of her 2000 Color of Silence album.
I have featured Jim Strong here several times. I first met Jim at a wrestling show many years ago. We crossed paths mny times and became friends in the process. When I heard Tiffany was performing in Schaumburg, I thought Jim would want to go and he did.
The show was at the Prairie Center for the Arts, an intiamte theater and we had front row seats. Young Ali Morgan opened for Tiffany. It seemed fitting that a teenager would set the stage for the now veteran Tiffany. Both ladies put on a great night of music.
After the show, we met Tiffany and she was as sweet as could be. The line was long, but somehow we ended up near the front.I wrote more about the night at Halloween With Tiffany for Global Traveler.
Go to TiffanyTunes.com for more info on Tiffany. Hopefully, things will return to normal next year and we can see Tiffany again!
